Yume no Hajima Ring Ring

Yayy! Kyary Pamyu Pamyu has released her new MV: Yume no Hajima Ring Ring. The video seems like telling us a slight about Kyary's life, as the title means The Dream's Beginring-ring. The polar bear is the main icon who watches Kyary since she is a little girl, to a teenager, and then to a phenomenal Pon Pon Pon girl, until she becomes a Fashion Monster. At the end, she graduates, wearing her hakama and hugging this polar bear, saying bye-bye for the last time, followed by the tears come down from the polar bear's eye. Some comments on Youtube tells me that polar bear represents her dad, quoting it from Kyary's interview.

My favorite part or costume in this video is the hakama. It dominates with red. Kyary also wears red lipstick, which is a very rare sight. But still, she's so pretty and, of course, very cute.

I think, the concept is really cool, as always. Kyary shows us how's the Graduation season feeling in Japan (source). A girl has faced many phases of her life, and now starts the beginning to achieve her dream. The parents who always watch her behind now feel proud, touched, and sad, because it also means separation. I thought that the video also relates to Hinamatsuri, since it's nearby. Doesn't she also act as a girl here, a daughter? That's why I think it's related.

I really love her latest two videos; Mottai Night Land and this Yume no Hajima Ring Ring. Those two have cute concepts a la Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, and at the same time, present unique symbolism and give very deep meanings, don't you agree?!
